Since 1907, this handbook has been a "bible" for engineers, technicians, designers, managers, operators, and planners working in the electrical industry. Now extensively revised and updated, the handbook includes the latest scientific and technical information and data on the generation, transmission, distribution, control and application of electrical power. More than 100 contributors have pooled their expertise to make this a current and comprehensive reference. The 13th edition now features completely revised chapters on batteries, energy storage, transmission systems and computers. Coverage includes new developments in such emerging and rapidly changing technologies as: battery technology for electric vehicles; energy storage; computing and information systems; automatic control of generators, transmission systems, and distribution systems and controlling and transporting electric power over complex networks. The new edition also includes a detailed section on the electrical sciences and technology. In addition, a comprehensive bibliography, along with key word and topical indexes, helps users save valuable time in obtaining the necessary data. More than 2,000 illustrations complement the text.
